    Blizzard Recap

    3/27/2014, 11:00:51 AM

    The blizzard of 2014 certainly lived up to the hype and then some based on the snow and wind observations from Cape Cod, Mass., to Atlantic Canada.

    The images below were taken near Charlottetown, PEI, looking out the front door. Images courtesy J. Te Raa.

    Even the snow blower had second thoughts about going outside!

    The storm will continue to slowly weaken as it moves north of Newfoundland later today. The visible satellite image below shows the center of the storm over Newfoundland as of this morning....

    A much weaker storm compared to this past monster storm could bring accumulating snow to parts of central and southern New Brunswick, PEI, and possibly extreme northern Nova Scotia on Sunday. Temperatures will not nearly be as cold with this storm and thus it looks like mostly rain for most of Nova Scotia at this point.

    I will get into more detail on that in my next blog as the track of this system is still very questionable.
